It appears like Kanye West is suffering the consequences of his divisive remarks! For the uninitiated, Ye made antisemitic comments while appearing on Drink Champs; he claimed that the Jewish community allegedly holds immense power in the media and blamed them for the blocking of his Instagram and Twitter accounts as well as the termination of his partnerships with several companies. Where does Kim Kardashian fit into this situation, then?
Children of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are being “Compartmentalized”
According to E! News, Kim Kardashian, who has been involved in a contentious divorce fight with her estranged husband Kanye West, is concentrating on being a strong parent in the wake of the rapper’s 45-year-old antisemitic comments. North West, 9, Saint West, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm West, 3, are the couple’s four children. According to a close friend of Kim Kardashian, “Kim’s simply constantly worrying about the kids.”
According to a second insider, Kim Kardashian is managing things at home like this: “Kim does a wonderful job of compartmentalising and attempting to maintain calm for the kids. They concentrate on the children and their activities.”
Even though she didn’t directly address him, Kim Kardashian seems to have supported Kanye West’s antisemitic sentiments in the following Instagram Story from October 24: “Hate speech is never acceptable or justified. I demand that the awful acts of violence and offensive remarks directed at the Jewish community cease right away.”
Kanye West has repeatedly attacked Kim Kardashian on social media since she filed for divorce; among other things, he has voiced his contempt for Kim K’s ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson and expressed annoyance that North had a TikTok account. The 42-year-old reality star-turned-entrepreneur wrote a lengthy tirade against Kanye West on Instagram Stories in February: “Actually, Kanye’s relentless criticism of me in interviews and on social media hurts more than anything TikTok North could produce. I try to safeguard our kid while also enabling her to express her creativity in the way she chooses with adult supervision since it makes her happy. I am the parent who is the primary provider and caretaker for our children.”
Added Kim Kardashian, “Our children already struggle with divorce, so Kanye’s preoccupation with attempting to control and publicly manipulate our situation simply makes things worse for everyone. Since the beginning, I have just wanted a good co-parenting arrangement since that is what is best for our children, and it saddens me that Kanye is obstructing it at every turn. I want to address all concerns with our kids quietly, and I’m hoping he’ll finally go back to the third lawyer he’s had in the past year so we can work out any differences peacefully.”
Kanye West and Adidas part ways. Following antisemitic remarks
Adidas has finished working with Kanye West and his brand Yeezy after Gap and Balenciaga. The business said in a statement obtained by E! News, “Adidas rejects all forms of hate speech, including antisemitism. Ye has recently made remarks and taken acts that are undesirable, harmful, and against the company’s principles of inclusiveness, respect, and fairness. After carefully considering all options, the business has decided to immediately sever its relationship with Ye, cease making Yeezy-branded items, and stop paying Ye and his businesses. Adidas will immediately halt its Adidas Yeezy operations.”
Kanye West’s relationship with Adidas has ended, and according to Forbes, his net worth has fallen to $400 million, making him no longer a billionaire. His music collection, real estate, cash, and a 5% ownership share in Kim Kardashian’s shapewear company Skims are thought to be the sources of his increased net worth. But a source close to Skims claimed that Ye hasn’t been associated with the company since its 2019 debut. In addition, Kanye West’s talent agency CAA has rejected him as a client, and MRC has delayed a recently finished Ye documentary, according to a statement from its studio officials. Despite his divisive statements, Mr. West’s demise keeps approaching.
